On July 24, 2018 Jesus took my precious mommy ( @forgirlslikeyou ) off this earth. It happened within a couple hours and was so sudden. My heart hurts like never before. Comfort seems far. Anxiety is extremely present. It still feels like a dream that I will wake up from soon. I will remember those thirty minutes for the rest of my life. And I will remember the pain I felt as I found out. But the nurse repeated this phrase to me as I walked down that hospital hallway. And for some reason I couldn’t forget them. As they told me my mom had passed, these words continued and still continue to pound in my head. “I’m gonna tell you something I need you never to forget ok? You serve a big God. A big God. Don’t you ever forget that.” I serve a big God. Obstacles will be thrown at me but my God is still there. He knows what he’s doing and he’s got a plan. I say this not by sheer will but through faith. In the moment, his plan may seem outrageous and I may not understand. I continue to ask myself why me. Why did He choose my family. But I’m reminded He’s in control. So even as I weep and grieve, I can smile with joy because I’ll see her again. Even now she’s been throwing little winks at me. Please be praying for my family as my three younger sisters and I have lost our mommy and my dad has lost his best friend.❤️

Today we mourn but all of our yesterdays will live on forever. My little sister in age and size could light up a room with her presence. I will miss her dearly.”

I can’t believe that I would be posting this about my only 38 yr old sister. Our hearts are heavy as on yesterday Wynter Pitts passed away. @forgirlslikeyou She was my only sibling. Over the years we grew to be so close. I don’t understand why God has called her home so early But…. I have to TRUST whatever he is doing even though I don’t understand why. We were just 2 kids growing up in Baltimore City and who knew all that she would accomplish so much in such a too short life. I am so grateful for the last 2 and a half years that we were only 10 minutes away from one another. Before that there were thousands of miles between us. Please pray for my brother in law @pittsjr26 my beautiful nieces and the rest of our family. The is a heavy weight to carry but we must keep going. So many lives were touched by her ministry and she was so happy in life. Today we mourn but all of our yesterdays will live on forever. My little sister in age and size could light up a room with her presence. I will miss her dearly. #godknows #trusting #mysister #forgirlslikeyou #youwillbemissed #family #wynterpitts #love
